Scenario A

If the USD/SGD Prevailing Spot Rate is above 1.2720 at Expiry Date, Observation Trigger, 2:00 pm Singapore Time, no conversion takes place, you will receive your investment plus interest in original currency (SGD).
If USD/SGD rate is above 1.2720
Prevailing exchange rate on expiration rate1.2750
Amount received upon maturityS$100,000 + (S$100,000 x 5% x 14/365) = $S100,191.78
GainS$191.78

Scenario B

If the USD/SGD Prevailing Spot Rate is equal or below 1.2720 at Expiry Date, Observation Trigger, 2:00pm Singapore Time, conversion takes place, you will receive your investment plus interest in alternate currency (USD).
If USD/SGD rate is equal or below 1.2720
Prevailing exchange rate on expiration rate1.2650
Amount received upon maturity[S$100,000 + (S$100,000 x 5%
x 14/365)]/1.2720 = US$78,767.12
Gain(USD 78,767.12 x 1.2650) -
SGD 100,000 = (SGD 359.59)
Dual Currency Investment Scenarios
*Note: In Scenario B, the proceeds have been converted into Alternative Currency at the Target Conversion Rate (1.2720). If the market exchange rate is USD/SGD 1.2650 at the time of reconversion to the Base Currency, the proceeds converted back to SGD will be: USD 78,767.12 X 1.2650 = SGD 99,640.41.

Disclaimer

Purchasing a Dual Currency Investment (“DCI”) gives RHB the right to repay you at a future date in an alternate currency that is different from the currency in which your initial investment was made, regardless of whether you wish to be repaid in the alternate currency at that time.

DCI are subject to foreign exchange fluctuations which may affect the return of your investment. Exchange controls may also be applicable to the currencies your investment is linked to. You may incur a loss on your principal sum in comparison with the base amount initially invested. DCI are subject to exchange controls applicable to the currencies linked to your investment. There may also be situations, due to reasons beyond RHB’s control (e.g. restrictions on convertibility of currency, exercise of government or military powers, war, strikes, etc.), where it is impossible, illegal or impracticable for RHB to convert the base currency into the alternate currency or deliver the maturity proceeds in the relevant currency to you. In such event, RHB may redeem the DCI prematurely and you may receive substantially less than the original investment amount. The market value of the DCI in these situations will be determined by RHB in its sole discretion, taking into consideration all relevant information (including the impracticality, illegality or impossibility) less the cost to RHB of unwinding any related underlying hedging arrangements (including but not limited to selling or otherwise realising any options, futures contracts in relation to the investment). DCI are not principal protected and is not an insured deposit for the purpose of Deposit Insurance and Policy Owners’ Protection Scheme Act 2011.
